Jesus, The Untold Story: His Life and Message (4-hour Course)

I will be teaching a course on the life of Jesus at Keele University on Wednesday 10th/December/2014 from 17.00-21.00. The course will be based on the Qur'anic account of Jesus' life which I will contrast with the story in the New Testament and other Christian and historical sources. I will also make comparative references to relevant concepts and statements from the Old Testament and other Jewish writings. I will explain where the various accounts agree and differ.
